Plot Synopsis

BAD BLOOD is a one-hour crime drama series that follows the true story of the Rizzuto family and its associates, who presided over organized crime in Montreal for decades. While imprisoned in Colorado's Supermax Prison for the murders of three Bonanno family members, Montreal mobster Vito Rizzuto relies heavily on his right-hand man, Declan Gardiner, to be his eyes and ears on the outside. But as the thriving empire he built is dismantled, Rizzuto watches helplessly as his closest friends and family members are mysteriously murdered one by one -- ultimately culminating in a Shakesperean-level revenge mission upon his release.

BAD BLOOD had its U.S. premiere on Friday, December 7, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Netflix released the entire six-episode first season. Nine months earlier -- on March 6, 2018 -- Citytv renewed BAD BLOOD for a second season. Season 2 picks up five years after Rizzuto's death and his former right-hand man, Declan Gardiner, is the reigning king of the Montreal drug trade -- that is, until a new breed of mafiosos arrive from Europe to wage war in an attempt to wrestle the city from his grasp. Declan comes up against rivals, both old and new, who want to start dealing more dangerous substances; meanwhile, the Organized Crime Task Force gets ready to take everyone down with the help of a confidential informant. Although he prefers to work alone, Declan soon realizes that, in order to remain on top, he'll need to enlist some help. Ready to go to war with Declan are his enemies, Hamilton's Cosoleto brothers, Domenic and Enzo, and their sons, Luca and Nats. On the opposite side of the law is a Senior Agent in the Organized Crime Task Force, Nellie Bullock, who is working her confidential informant, Nats's wife, Valentina Cosoleto. But things turn explosive when Declan refuses an offer to partner with the imported power duo and sultry Langana twin siblings, Teresa and Christian. Left with no other choice, Declan looks to partner with an unlikely ally, Rose Sunwind, and takes an important friend from his past, Reggie Ross, under his wing.
Season 2 of BAD BLOOD premiered in the U.S. on Friday, May 31, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Netflix released the entire eight-episode new season. After a hard-fought power struggle in Montreal, Declan emerges victorious. But a powerful new presence from abroad soon poses a new threat. The second season opens in the wake of a bloody gangland war, where Declan assumes sole control of Montreal's drug trade. But new arrivals from Italy complicate matters.
